Sheikh Nazim Al-Haqqani, The Proof of Generosity and
the Pole of Creation.
Sheik Nazim Al Haqqani is one of the few living and accessible
Saints of our time. He lives on the small island of Cyprus on the
Northern side, currently under Turkish rule. He lives very simply
and turns no one away from his table. His modest home feeds over one
hundred people a day, year round. Rain or shine, cold winters and
boiling summers, he is always available for the hearts of human
beings flocking to him for guidance. Sometimes that guidance comes
through a glance, an inspiration of the heart, or just a few words.
Just being in his presence brings light to the heart and quite often
tears to the eyes.
We, your hosts at Broken Earth, do not claim to be special
students, or even successful ones. We love him because he carries
our hearts and prayers to our Creator, and we are loved by him and
belong to him simply because he says so.
During Saint Yusef's last earthly encounter with the Sheik, he
placed his hand on Yusef's head and told him that he was "of the
700, and perhaps even the 350," he also said he loved Yusef and that
they were "classmates." Earlier in the summer, he often referred to
him as his 'grandson.'
